The following article was submitted by Karen Collins on behalf of the Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution member Woodie Etheridge Hornburg is scheduled to be honored at the state convention in March for being a 50-year member of the Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter. She joined DAR in 1967, and will be recognized and presented a certificate during the program next month.
Hornburg is a resident of Brackettville.
The Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter members met at El Progreso Memorial Library in Uvalde on Saturday, Feb. 17, with 22 members and guests present.
Regent Lesley Jones and chaplain Alice Hicks led the ritual and pledges. The program was presented by retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mary Jane Olson, and she gave a most informative and entertaining description of her 24 years of duty in the Army Nurses Corps. She served as an instructor to medical personnel, and told the group how they were trained to handle catastrophic situations as well as routine procedures.
